In the end, his dominion did not touch a single poster.





Someone posts criticizing the SC community and the only comment (at the time) is "don't you have any better way to spend your time?"

Ben posts a 1000 word essay regarding a ban and "I'm glad you got to the bottom of this"

I'm thinking of writing a review of 2.0, or what little I've been at to play. Something along the lines of a the good/the bad/and the ugly review.

"I awoke on what appeared to be a space station. A used container of Chinese food and what appeared to be space port strewn out next to the bed. Something told me the backers would find this entire scene amazingly immersive. As if many a nights had ended this exact way, minus the being in space bit of course. I checked the lockers in my room half expecting to find a furry space suit, but alas there was nothing. Guess some levels of immersion are still being tweaked."

At this point, as sad as it is to say, nothing short of a total shutdown of production would wake them up. Even then you'd still have hanger ons. Just look at the never be game over folks regarding Metal Gear. Even after Kojima has left Konami they're holding on. Some people just can't let a dream die.

Well as a co-creator and writer of the site let me tell you: not that popular. Lol. We just do it because it's something we love, gaming, comics, board games, etc.

We made enemies (I guess you could say) of the cultists awhile back as we call it how we see it and they don't like that. V wrote an amazing tear down of the infamous letter and I was writing a series in the history of the game, but after getting restlessly poo poo on I took a step back. Just quit giving a poo poo about the whole SC thing for a bit - hence the lack of post here. Today that changed.

We're not journalist. We're opinionated as gently caress and we just talk about what we want. Some like it, some don't. More importantly we answer to no one but ourselves. And we have no qualms about passing some people off with the truth.

That's actually not true. The window looks narrow, but we also don't sit like four feet back from it. See and avoid is still the name of the game below 18,000 and in visual meteorological conditions.

I stand corrected, but could we say that visibility, while not something that is ignored, is not the prime concern of commercial airliner cockpit design ? My bet would be that readability and accessibility of all the avionics sit much higher on the design goal list.

What I have read has been of general high quality, so please continue. One thing she forgot to mention (or may not know) is that CIG never says how many backers they actually have. They say how many accounts are on RSI, and they say how many ships are bought, but not how many people have actually paid to back SC.

If you don't hear anything you should make a thread on reddit about how your polite refund request is getting ignored to see if you can get a 20 page effort post from since he apparently has nothing better to do with his time.

This is actually a really good idea. I mean for those that haven't bought into the game it would be nice to show them what efforts must be taken, and where they will lead, should one invest and then decide to pull out. I imagine there are plenty of people out there that are weary of getting involved due to the possibility of not being able to get a refund should things go south. Also it would just be drat hilarious to post their increasingly "gently caress you" responses regarding refunds.
